Those familiar with the Phoenix dining scene are likely already fans of Pizzeria Bianco's sister sandwich spot, Pane Bianco. Until now, the restaurant's sandwiches, served on bread straight out of the wood burning oven, were unavailable outside of the Valley. However, now Tucsonans can get a taste of Pane without leaving the Old Pueblo.

That's right, folks. Pizzeria Bianco (272 E. Congress St.) is now open for lunch and serving up the three sandwiches in the style of Pane Bianco, with some differences. Although the bread is the same fluffy focaccia rounds, split in half, the menu is a little different:

Sandwiches:
-Sopressata, aged provolone, peppronata ($10)
-Fresh goat cheese, roasted tomato, arugula ($10)
-Market sandwich ($12)

Like Pane Bianco, the market sandwich at Pizzeria Bianco could be tender porchetta, slow roasted lamb or a "Sloppy Giuseppe"—the spot's take on a Sloppy Joe with an Italian twist. When tomatoes are in season, you'll also likely see Pane's hallmark sandwich offering—the housemade mozzarella, tomato and basil—as a special. If you're one of those people who far too often has to eat at their desk, the sandwiches are available to go as well.

The pizzeria is serving their six pizzas and three salad options during lunch too, which runs daily from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Pizzeria Bianco also plans to start serving spirits and cocktails at the restaurant in the near future.
